    Default Swim nappy

    My DD is starting swimming lessons next week and she's 8 months old. Are there such things as swimming nappies? I've got a MCN swim nappy but if she does a poo I can't see that holding much lol

    What does everyone else use?

    Yep, Huggies make a swim nappy called little swimmers and I've also seen other cheaper brands.

    I put DS in a disposable swim nappy and then put a reusable one over the top as I'm paranoid about him pooing in the pool!

    We use the Huggies swim nappies but reuse them. They will last quite a few washes, I just pop them in with the swimmers. Much cheaper! I think I've managed to use only 2 nappies for about 9 months of weekly swimming lessons with DD.

    Target, Big W etc all sell swim nappies which are about $8-$12. They are machine washable and loos like thicker swimwear bottoms.

    DD has used them for 8 months now at swim lessons. They hold a poo but obviously wee just runs through.

    I just put her one piece swimwear over the swim nappy.

    Why don't you just get a reusable one? I bought a Kushies one from Baby Bunting and I think it's actually better than the Huggies ones. The disposable ones aren't designed to absorb anything, the wee still goes out into the water. With the Kushies one you tie it up at the waist and it has velcro fasteners, so you can actually get a nice firm fit around the waist, and the legs on it are snug without being too tight. So if the baby was to do a poo I think the Kushies one would hold it better (until you get straight out of course!). DD is nearly 12 months and has been swimming for 9 months, I've never had a poo accident *touches wood*.
    This is what they look like, below. We go swimming a lot at the pool, it would cost a fortune to buy the disposable ones and I hate reusing them. I just chuck the Kushies one in the wash when we get home. Oh, and I put her bathers over the top, can hardly tell she's got it on.

    We use BBH multi fit covers as a swim nappy (no inserts), at the suggestion of the previous BBH owner. Just rinse them afterwards. They work well

    This is what I got for DD. Firm leg and waist elastic catches poos.

    A regular disposable holds too much water and weighs them down.
